LEADERS LIKE US

“I really enjoyed the coaching session today and feel inspired about my focused actions for the future. I’ve had a great conversation with my Chair tonight, capturing how we need to re-focus governor measures and pull everything back to our values, vision and strategy. It was very well received and we’ve even set a date to engage all the governors. A great day!"

Email, Headteacher, Leeds, 2020
